EXCERPT:

... I stand, then trip and fall on my ass, the bloods so thick I can't get a foothold.
Kiki's eyes slide to a point left and behind my shoulder. I duck.
The breeze of a hand moves over my head and I run.
I sprint to Mick's bedroom and slam the door, flipping the lock.
XXX hits the door.
It shudders.
My eyes charge around the room, then light on the glass towel bar inside the bathroom. It takes seconds for me to see it's all I have.
I run in there as the door cracks behind me.
I take a vase of marble and toss the flowers out on the floor. They scatter like a rain of petals and I bash the base into the towel bar holder that's embedded in the wall tile.
The glass bar begins to slide out of the broken holder, the end is sheared off into a jagged point.
I drop the vase and it shatters the tile floor.
I grab the rod before it hits the floor and Jay is there, scooping me up from behind.
Peanut! My mind wails.
The maternal protection instinct crushes me. It sets my teeth and leaks out of me in a growl so primal Jay pauses in his assault.
I can hardly breathe for it.
I don't need to. I wrap my hands against the opposite end of the towel bar and stab backwards.
He screams and staggers away from me.
I glance behind me and see I've nailed him in the groin.
Our eyes meet.
I see the end of me in his.
I tear out of there and he rushes after me.
I move by Kiki and tears are streaming out of her eyes as I leap over XXXXX's body and move to the elevators.
XXX is exiting the door, maybe twenty feet behind me and bleeding like a stuck pig.
Stuck dick, I think and a hysterical bark of laughter erupts.
I'm losing it.
The elevator opens and I jump inside.
Thomas's dead eyes look up at me. His skin is already gray.
Adrenaline surges to my extremities.
I look up and XXX ten feet away, he looks like he's peed his pants.
In blood.
I hit the up button with my bad hand by accident and the doors whisk shut. The elevator travels up instead of down.
Penthouse suite. No escape.
I back into the corner, pressing my face against the cold walls.
The mirror at the back reflects Thomas on the ground at my feet.
Kiki's down there.
I cover my mouth, choking back a sob.
Survive.
The chime pings and I move outside the doors and rush through the opaque tarp that hangs in the entrance....




Sexy young couple in darkThe Token 1 
Twenty-two year old Faren Mitchell hears the two words that change her abbreviated life forever. They're so final Faren decides she has nothing to lose by seizing every remaining moment of what life has to offer. Until Faren collides with a motorcycle ridden by billionaire Jared McKenna. Even the dark secret of her past and catharsis as a physical therapist can't save Faren from the sexual spiral that waits for her in the arms of a man who commits to no one. When circumstances force her to get a second job as an exotic dancer, Faren never imagines how close that choice will bring her to the brink of a new reality she is unequipped to handle.

Faren Mitchell keeps the secret of her second job from the one man who could see her through some of the darkest moments of her life. She doesn't want Jared "Mick" McKenna for the billions he's amassed, but for the one thing she's never given any man: her innocence. Mick's guilt over the injury he inflicted fuels the beginnings of something more; a sexual consumption of each other that neither were anticipating. When Faren's actions don't match her words, Mick suspicions are raised. His feelings turn to ones of protection after Faren is mugged and he can't reconcile his desire for her with the reality they now find themselves in. As Faren's bucket list grows, so does the danger that surrounds the choices she's made. Can she take what she needs from Mick and also secure her mother's life? Or will the truth she has weaved between the lies doom them both?


The Token 3The Token 3 
Faren collapses, narrowly escaping discovery upon hearing traumatic news delivered by Thorn. When Thorn becomes her uneasy accomplice in the deception of Mick, Faren decides she needs to come clean with the truth. Shelving her pride might be the last thing she wants to do, but as facts and actions continue to contradict one another, her hands become tied in the lies she creates to survive. Faren only needs one last lap dance to erase the final debt that hangs over her mother's head like a cloud of doom. But when Ronnie Bunce circles closer to Faren and threatens the last sanctuary she possesses, circumstances unravel to reveal lies that run deeper than she knew. Can Faren and Mick consummate their passion before her deceit is discovered? Or will the last dance be the ultimate loss?  


The Token 4The Token 4 
Faren doesn't think her heart can break any further until Mick discovers her sullied secret in the worst way possible. Faren picks up the shattered remnants of her emotions and moves forward with a desperate plan to win Mick back that doesn't involve one penny of his billions. When Faren sees what remains of her life coming together with a synchronicity she can only dream of, the unexpected happens with Jay--and she must play a razor's edge of deception once again. Can she tie this final loose end and receive the money from that aborted last dance before the countdown of debt has expired? Will a dirty cop and the long arm of Ronnie Bunce conspire to ruin the fragile bond she's created with Mick? Or will the concessions Faren's made along the way shatter the dark joy she has been given ....

When Mick finds out the absolute truth, the dynamic of their relationship changes to include something she never expected to have: hope.

Will blackmail be successful in ruining the one thing Faren's decided she wants even more than her own life?
